Friday Finds

Boise is full of spring blossoms today, and the sun is shining. 

It's a perfect Friday, and I have lots of great finds to share.

First up, a few wonderful DIY's.

Knick of Time
 Angie at Knick of Time made some beautiful backgrounds for vignettes and shares some wonderful examples for using them around the home.

Thistlewood Farms
Kari Anne from Thistlewood Farms shares her $100 peel and stick tile butler's pantry floor. Isn't this a great vintage look at an amazing price?

Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Man

 Jamie at Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom shares an easy to follow tutorial with a diagram for making a bubble fountain. This is on my summer to-do list.

Our Home Away from Home
 I've been waiting with excitement for Maria Elena from Our Home Away from Home to reveal her new craft room. Check out the fun cheerful details and great storage ideas. And though this looks straight out Pottery Barn, Maria Elena and her husband did all the work themselves! 

M-T Tails
 Meg's new white dining room at MT Tails is absolutely one of my all-time favorite rooms. Every inch is styled to perfection gorgeous. This green buffet is just one of many wonderful pieces of furniture. This room is a must-see

In My Own Style
 Diane at In My Own Style painted this pretty sideboard for a pop of color, then topped it with the perfect lamps and striped shades. I'm crazy about this contemporary look. 

  I'm equally in love with this curvy painted vintage buffet and French labels found over at Cat-arzyna.  


I came across yet another perfect buffet on Kristen's house tour at Sophia's.  (You MUST see the entire house tour!) 

Four totally different buffets above, and each one is as gorgeous as the one before. Sigh...  I love it!

Never Enough Thyme
 Have I mentioned before that family Sunday summer dinners on the deck are a tradition at my house? Over-the-top old fashioned desserts like Lana's Strawberry Icebox Cake from Never Enough Thyme are often a fun part of the menu.

Yep, I can't wait for warm summer evenings. 

I hope you found a few Friday Finds to tickle your taste today. 

Happy Friday! 
Have a wonderful weekend!
